Message from CEO

 

Under our vision "to create the 21st century's leading company," we have worked to expand the business in the fast-changing internet industry by honing our ability to 'adapt to change' and drawing on our advantages in 'talent,' 'technology' and 'creation.

'Taking the opportunity that ABEMA celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2021, we redefined it as the new TV for the future that brings the best of TV to the internet. The number of downloads reached 73 million, and it has achieved a record high of 18 million weekly active users by updating its User Interface and continuing to expand the content. There is a high level of affinity between ABEMA and sports betting service WINTICKET, and monetization diversification strategies have brought it to the phase of operating loss improvement.

Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry, CyberAgent's internet advertising business performed well with a high rate of revenue increase, achieved a higher growth rate than the last four years by the operational capabilities and successful implementation of technologies, including AI. We also succeeded in boosting earnings in the game business due to new titles becoming major hits.

With all these businesses performed well, we issued two upward revisions in the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021, with net sales increasing by 39% from the previous fiscal year to 666.4 billion yen and operating income tripling from the previous fiscal year to 104.3 billion yen. We feel that this demonstrates that our performance level has reached a new level.We have started applying our knowledge and technological capabilities in the digital domain, promoting DX to help solve social issues.

Following in the footsteps of our internet advertising and game businesses, we will continue to develop media businesses centered on ABEMA, and pursuing sustainable management purposed towards "breaking through Japan's sense of stagnation through new capabilities and internet-based strategies."

Thank you for your continued support of CyberAgent.
